Mostly internal changes and corrections of bugs.
A vignette, Introduction, has been written to introduce the usage of the package, its classes and methods.
getColumns function has been implemented for column
wise extraction of data, and other methods for data extraction are
now based on this function.
getValue function is deprecated and replaced by
getFactors. A call of
getValue is now identical to a call of

coarsen argument has been introduced for the
MarkedPointProcess objects. This allows for
coarsing event points to the observervation grid instead of adding
additional points to the grid.

show methods have been modified to print out only
a limited amount of structural information, and the
methods have taken over the role of computing and showing more
(summarized) information on the content of the objects.
The internal representations for all classes have been reimplemented and all objects from prior versions must be recreated from the original data.
The implementation does not use the Matrix class anymore.
plot methods are now based on a formal S4 class instead
of a list, and a
plot method is implemented for this
class. The class is, however, currently not exported.
Many parts of the code have been clarified and optimized,
for instance the implementation of the
A battery of unit tests based on RUnit has been added.
